Compartment cooling prolongs the service life of electronic equipment with different temperature requirements.
Peltier TEC Cooling - how it works
When a voltage is applied to a thermoelectric device, it creates a temperature difference causing charged carriers in the material to diffuse from the hot to the cold side, thus inducing a thermal current; also known as the Peltier effect.
Among other things, this effect can be used to change the temperature of a given object. In other words, a Peltier device is a thermo electric heat pump: when direct current runs through it, heat or cold is created by the moving electrodes. Therefore, the Peltier device can be used for heating, cooling or as a temperature controller.
The main advantages of a Peltier device are the lack of liquid in the cooling system and minimization of moving parts, as well as its small size and flexible shape ensuring multiple installation options.
The Peltier technology is highly suitable for compartment cooling and is often used in combination with passive or free cooling solutions to achieve optimum savings. Compartmentalized cooling of temperature sensitive components allows a higher temperature for the non-temperature sensitive components.
